Excited to share their collaboration, the pair will be hitting the road this fall starting on Sept. 1 in Santa Cruz, Calif. Jenny and Johnny also plan to play Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival and perform as the openers for Pavement in Brooklyn on Sept. 19 and Superchunk's Sept. 22 gig in Philadelphia.
Unfortunately, due to Arizona's recent immigration policy, the band has skipped the state on their tour in protest. "This bill legalizes and sanctions racial profiling," the band wrote on its website. "They can stop you in the street, arrest and even deport you based on what you look like. We say: f--- that. So many of our friends and fans are of Latino/Chicano/Hispanic origin, and we wanna show our love and respect for them by boycotting the state of Arizona until they come to their senses. To all our rad Southwestern peeps, we're sorry that the brutes are running the show and we hope they get voted out of office."
While there's no set release date for the album, fans can pre-order it on Jenny and Johnny's site.
